How the PlayStation Vita Made Me Eat My Own Words

Joel Taveras writes, "Where do I begin? A little over a year ago, I went to great lengths to explain why — at the time — the Nexus 7 tablet from Asus and Google was a safer bet than the PlayStation Vita (no seriously, let me finish, this gets good). So much so, that I went out of my way to write an editorial on how I was trading in Sony’s handheld for the new piece of Android tech.

What have I done?" (PS Vita, Sony)

It's the way of Sony consoles. You get lots of hits to hate on them, then lots of hits to say you're wrong. Same old same old.

Wtf did I say. I told you so lol. Its fun being right when everyone thought you we're wrong.

I respect the author for admitting his mistake. Maybe he wont be so quick to make assumptions next time.

Laptops, dedicated gaming devices, and the like all have their place and there's no reason they can't coexist.

I will say it as well. I told you so. Next time you get on the hype train stop and think before you write your article.

Many people are eating their words but at least this guy has the decency to admit it.

my only problem concerning the vita is that i don't have enough time to play it as much as i want.

Best handheld I've ever owned. I will never find enough time to play every game. It's a good problem.

Looks like kill zone mercenary is shaping up to be the handheld multiplayer game ever judging by the beta! The vita gets better and better, the best handheld ever imo

Lol tablets.. I still haven't forgotten that terrible IGN blog they put up in the Vita section on the front page, that said the Kindle Fire HD was better than a PS Vita. Some long rant about how some guy from IGN was trading in his Vita for a Kindle Fire HD and then seriously comparing the games, saying they are better... lol..

Lol yea what you have done.. Made yourself look foolish is what you've done. I never doubted the Vita, I know potential when I see it.

Making you eat your own words is an impressive feat. Now only if it got some great games, zing. lol

Seriously now, is the KZ mercany beta out today and how big is it? Need to try that bad boy out as I am still skeptical on handheld FPS.

-Anyone who hates on Vita has never picked one up and seen the power and the beauty that it brings.

You cannot use the best ever of anything and then hate on it or claim it inferior. Your first reaction is, "Dam, that's badass. Gotta get one!"

its ok mr. author, everyone makes some mistakes, we can easily judge a system by how it performs in the market, and make silly negative predictions and said its a fact, but in reality things can go up or go down, ^_^

so we cant say the wii u is over too.. its just like the vita.. having a hard time to penetrate the evolving world of gaming ^_^
because people have a lots of gaming options unlike before, isnt it?

I wouldn't compare the Wii U to the Vita... The Wii U is more like the Gamecube, and that's not a good thing... Not that the Gamecube didn't have great games... It just never got the momentum it needed.
